With three kids in the house, there are fights. Mostly between the boys, but sometimes Renee is stuck in the middle of things too. Earlier today the boys were fighting over lego.
Ethan - "Give it back!"
Nicholas - "No, I had it first!"
Ethan - "But it's MINE!"
Nicholas - "No it's NOT!"
Ethan - "Yeah...well I'm going to flush it down the toilet in the poo water!"
In these situations, I usually do one of two things, depending on the severity of the headache they have given me. I'll either send them to their rooms or just take all the lego and put it in a time out (since the lego was ALL OVER the living room floor, the room option looked to be the most viable one). Just as I was about to tell them to take a hike upstairs, Renee wanders into the playroom, grabs the lego piece they are fighting over and tells them to "stop it". My own little personal enforcer. I love it!
